Mojang (the creators of Minecraft) have announced that Xbox Live Sign-In is required to play online.
Fortunately we have prepared for this change!
Here is what you need to know:
You will have to create an Xbox account
The easiest way to do this is to open minecraft and click the "Sign In" Button. It will prompt you to create an account. Or you can go directly to Xbox: Xbox Login
1 - Find your PIGRAID minecraft profile name. It is located in Minecraft -> Settings -> Profile -> Name (This is your usual player name on the PIGRAID Servers)
2 - Check to see if your PIGRAID name (found in the previous step) is available as an Xbox GamerTag HERE
3 - After checking the GamerTag site:
- If you found your PIGRAID name is available in the previous step then create your Xbox live account using your PIGRAID name as your Xbox GamerTag and Continue to step 4.
- If your PIGRAID name is already taken on Xbox, think up a new name and create your Xbox live account using that new name as the GamerTag.
4 - Start up Minecraft and Sign into Xbox (Sign In button in Minecraft) You will notice your Profile name is now your GamerTag!
5 - You're done! You may now stay logged into Xbox and play on Pigraid.
